A miscarriage is primarily defined as an unintentional loss of pregnancy before the 20th week of gestation. Both the practice and theory show that pregnancy losses up to the 10th week of gestation may, besides many other gynecological and microbiological causes, also be brought down to the existence of some of the acquired thrombophilia such as antiphospholipid syndrome. Numerous studies have been conducted to examine the efficiency of therapy administration to prevent adverse outcomes of pregnancy. Hereditary thrombophilia are more connected with adverce pregnancy outcomes.
